OVHCglobal –  Are you staying and working in Australia after graduation and need to meet your 485 visa health insurance requirement? We offer Overseas Visitor Health Cover (OVHC) for international visitors on a 485 Temporary Graduate Visa. Our OVHC is Australia-wide and lets you access medical and health cover if something happens during your stay.
